Children - at the beach or wherever they are (doing what children do best i.e. being themselves), make wonderful subjects.
I love the challenge of capturing a day, a feeling, a special time in a painting. I think that (good) art is like a poem - it condenses important things into heart language.
Some people have asked me to do their special children. I prefer to take my own photos - but sometimes this is not possible.
I enjoy people. I love a lot of them and appreciate their relationships. So far the ones I've painted have inspired me for important reasons and always for the good.
Birds are a delight. The represent both freedom (as they fly) and everyday cares (as they industriously seek their dinners). I enjoy watching and painting them.
I am a gardener of sorts. There is nothing more beautiful than a bouquet - the fruit of sunlit, love and care !
